Act of God[edit]

I wanted to let you know why I reverted a recent edit you made at Amusement park accidents. An Act of God is typically defined as an "extraordinary" event by a natural cause. Typical examples are floods, tornados, hurricanes, or something that results in a major accident. Slipping and falling wouldn't usually "fall" into this category (pardon the pun). Often when such events result in injury, the injured sue in court filing a claim against another party they deem responsible. The court will usually rule in favor if it is determined to be negligence on the part of the defendant, or they will rule against if it's determined to be negligence on the part of the plantiff. An "Act of God" wouldn't come into play in these circumstances. More importantly, this article doesn't currently contain any Act of God listings. So at the moment, it's not necessary to include Act of God as one of the bulleted items. --GoneIn60 (talk) 13:21, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Texas Giant incident[edit]

I reverted your recent edit at Incidents at Six Flags parks. Multiple reliable sources confirm the statements made by the eyewitness, and it should be acceptable to include it until we have more information from the investigation. We are assigning credit for the claim to the eyewitness, which is supported by the cited refs. The revised statement you proposed, "there may have been issues with the ride's restraint system not being securely locked" is not supported by these references. In fact, one of the references states that a family waiting behind the victim in line believes the restraints went down normally and when the coaster returned, the restraint was still down. --GoneIn60 (talk) 16:17, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, it turns out a tweet from one of the riders supports the claim that the restraint may have released during the ride. One of the original refs was updated by the publisher to reflect that, and a new ref altogether was added to the article as well also confirming the tweet. --GoneIn60 (talk) 03:52, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
